Nita Lakhani’s journey with an eating disorder (ED) began when she was just 12 years old, and persisted throughout her teenage and young adult years. Despite this, and additional health-related challenges, Nita pursued a career in pharmacy, working in diverse practice settings.
In 2017, Nita pursued graduate studies in Design for Health at OCAD University. Her final project involved developing a proposal for a dance/movement program for individuals affected by EDs in collaboration with Body Brave. As a 2020 graduate of the Design for Health program, Nita is interested in improving healthcare experiences, particularly for the ED population.
